MOSCOW, October 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russia is hoping for breaking the deadlock on the Iranian issue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the 8th East Asia Summit in Brunei. "I agree with my colleagues that we have good prospects to step up work on the Iranian nuclear program," Lavrov said. "We'll actively participate in these efforts."
He reminded about the upcoming meeting between the 3 + 3 group and Iran. "The statements by the new Iranian leadership give reasons to expect breaking the deadlock on this matter," Lavrov said.
